I’m always the first to admit that I’m a bit of a terrible shopper for clothes – what should be such a lovely thing to do, stresses me out and I end up going home with almost nothing. However the one thing I find so easy to shop for is a new pair of pyjamas; I have countless pairs of them and like to mix and match too. There’s something so comforting about a new pair of pyjamas and it’s become a bit of a running joke that every time I enter Primark, I come out with a pair of their tartan PJ bottoms.
Emma, however, is yet to be introduced to a pair of PJ’s. She’s a fairly tall girl but we’ve been clinging on to the fact that she can still fit into a sleepsuit. They always seem to keep her so warm, and getting into her sleepsuit seems to have formed part of her bedtime routine, but I knew one day I’d like her to have her first pair of pyjamas. So when Ollie & Leila contacted me to try out a personalised pair of PJ’s for the little lady, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something new.
Ollie & Leila are a British company, who have an amazing selection of children’s furniture that is fun for the kids but also looks great in your home. It really is a one stop shop to everything you would need, from beds to mattresses to desks and wardrobes too. I’ve always been a big fan of supporting British brands and absolutely fell in love with all their products, particularly for my stepson, as we are decorating his room at the moment.
When we received our parcel in the post, I was so surprised to see how lovingly it had been packaged. Wrapped in blue tissue paper, it had a Christmas tag and string wishing Emma a Merry Christmas, so adorable! We opened it up to find a pair of gorgeous 100% cotton rose garden pyjamas with Emma’s name embroidered on the left hand side. They are super cute and looking at them made me realise how grown up Emma has become over the past month or so…I thought they looked absolutely beautiful.
The next step was trying them on and seeing what Emma thought herself – being so used to sleepsuits, I wondered how she would find them. So we waited until the next bedtime and I was pleasantly surprised at how much she loved them. Usually it’s a daily battle getting her sleepsuit on, as there are so many poppers to do up and she gets rather impatient! She seemed to love how easy it was to put on and as a lover of buttons, she was in her element. One happy toddler right there. She also slept so well, which is a added bonus sleep deprived Mummy and Daddy weren’t expecting – thanks so much Ollie & Leila!
